I live in Chicago and I'm nuts.
I like games, women, tits, vagina, porn, and tits. Oh, I forgot to say I like tits. So, if you're going to be a cuntloaf about nudity on Tumblr, then you're blogging on the wrong site. Nice to meet you. Now, take off your clothes and cough.
Feel free to ask me random things or maybe submit something.
A little lesson for folks. Just because two things happen around the same time does not mean that they are linked.
Tumblr has had more than one server issue today. This morning the whole dashboard was spotty with loading and error messages. For a little while, up to a few minutes ago, it was not possible to post.
Just because this happened a few days after a warning came out about Missing e does not mean that the two have anything to do with each other.
Both Missing e users AND non-users both experienced these problems! Disabling or uninstalling Missing e had no effect because the problem was with Tumblr’s backend.
This is not the first time Tumblr’s service has become unstable and it won’t be the last.
I have also had some people suggest that Tumblr is intentionally creating problems in order to convince people not to use Missing e. This is pretty ridiculous. Causing problems specific to Missing e users is actually quite hard. I seriously doubt anyone would go through such an effort. Also, the fact that people who don’t use Missing e also experience the same problems suggests the same thing we’ve known for quite some time:
Tumblr is still a relatively young website. Its server infrastructure is still catching up to the huge demand its crazy growth puts on it. When problems come up, it is just best to ride them out. Despite the tongue-in-cheek attitude many people take when talking about Tumblr’s staff, they do have capable people that will set things right in the end.
